An Investigation on Benefit-Cost Analysis of Greenhouse Structures in Antalya

Sarı, Ramazan
Pekeriçli, Mehmet Koray
Significant population increase across the world, loss of cultivable land and increasing demand for food put pressure on agriculture. To meet the demand, greenhouses are built, which are, light structures with transparent cladding material in order to provide controlled microclimatic environment proper for plant production. Conceptually, greenhouses are similar with manufacturing buildings where a controlled environment for manufacturing and production have been provided and proper spaces for standardized production processes have been enabled. Parallel with the trends in the world, particularly in southern regions, greenhouse structures have been increasingly constructed and operated in Turkey. A significant number of greenhouses are located at Antalya. The satellite images demonstrated that for over last three decades, there has been a continuous invasion of greenhouses on all cultivable land. There are various researches and attempts for the improvement of greenhouse design and for increasing food production by decreasing required energy consumption. However, the majority of greenhouses in Turkey are very rudimentary structures where capital required for investment is low, but maintenance requirements are high when compared with new generation greenhouse structures. In this research paper, life-long capital requirements for construction and operation of greenhouse buildings in Antalya has been investigated by using benefit-cost analysis study.

Generation of food security sensitive regional development strategies through agricultural commodity value chains – case of south eastern anatolia region wheat value chain.
Gümüş, Müg; Pınarcıoğlu, Mehmet Melih; Department of City and Regional Planning (2019)
Currently, dramatic increase in world population, rapid urbanization of world population, changes in food demand and dietary composition, increasing pressure on limited natural resources, escalating climate change effect and fluctuating food prices result in a huge emphasis on food security studies as a contemporary issue .As a subject, food security studies tend to be considered at national or household level in a top-down approach and they are likely to handle the issue as restricted to a single sector (m...
Development of the algorithm of SOlAR TURnKEY: solar electricity software for Turkey
Karaveli, Abdullah Buğrahan; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Soytaş, Uğur; Department of Earth System Science (2018)
Together with the increase in population, consumption, environmental threats, social inclusion and poverty eradication needs, natural resource corruption and price, rapid electrification of the world necessitates to meet energy demand in the most efficient, economic, environmental and social way. At this point with the sharp decrease in prices, increase in efficiency and development in technology in addition to environmental friendliness and social inclusiveness, solar electricity has gained importance when...
Understanding individual behavior and moral judgments on food waste in a university cafeteria
Özokcu, Selin; Özdemir, Özlem; Beklioğlu, Meryem; Department of Earth System Science (2021-11-18)
Along with the global food crisis, climate change, population growth, urbanization, enlarging middle class, and shifts in consumption patterns, food waste became a severe problem to tackle. Around one-third of produced food, which approximates to 1.3 billion tonnes per year, has been globally wasted throughout the food supply chain. A considerable literature has proliferated around the theme of food waste; and yet the drivers of consumer-level food waste in emerging economies remains unattended. This disser...

Increased population growth, better living standards and improved economic activity put the upward burden on the world's inadequate water resources. A study was conducted to evaluate the quantity and quality of wastewater generated by industrial and municipal effluent and its treatment efficiency in a semi-arid city Faisalabad, Pakistan. Samples from industries (n = 60) and sewage water (n = 30) were collected and evaluated for different quality parameters. Physio-chemical including pH, total dissolved soli...
Recent advances in potato genomics, transcriptomics, and transgenics under drought and heat stresses: A review
Aksoy, Emre; Demirel, Ufuk; Öztürk, Zahide Neslihan; Çalişkan, Sevgi; Çalişkan, Mehmet Emin (2015-01-01)
Sustainable potato production practices are crucial for food security and social sustainability in the future since potato is a highly nutritious food and it is considered as one of the most promising crops to reduce human hunger and poverty in the world due to its high yield potential. However, being a temperate crop, potato is exposed to various environmental stresses, including extended periods of drought and heat. The majority of potato genomics, transcriptomics, and transgenics studies concentrate on t...
